River House

This stunning retreat was designed by Bali-based architect Alexis Dornier. River House is part of the "The River House Group", a collection of exquisite villas in Canggu and Perenenan, Bali. This impressive architectural statement is nestled in the jungle with rice paddy views, on the river, and with your own 25m pool. The five-bedroom house is built with reclaimed timber and locally sourced sandstone, it features the living rooms and garden located on the ground level, while, above them, seemingly hovers a cubic volume, which contains all private spaces.

Also by Alexis Dornier, the amazing Stilt Studios, and House Aperture
